Shannon Sharpe, former Denver Broncos tight end, has joined DimeSports.net as a spokesperson and contributor, announced Rob Braddy, President of DimeSports.
DimeSports.net (http://www.DimeSports.net) is a leading Fantasy Football League site that caters to new fantasy league players, up to more seasoned participants. The site is lauded by fans for being simple to manage, easy to access and is extremely rewarding for participants. According to Braddy, it offers the largest cash grand prize in Fantasy Football at $100,000. Available to fantasy league players since 2005, the site is also known for being cutting edge for players, having the latest and greatest innovations.
"To be involved with DimeSports.net is a real exciting opportunity for me," said Sharpe. "I can extend my knowledge of X's and O's along with championship gridiron experience, to fans and fantasy league players alike. The fact that DimeSports.net offers weekly and season-ending cash prizes and a large grand prize makes this the fantasy football game to play. The upcoming season promises to be another great season with plenty of surprises for all. I'm really looking forward to shaking the hand of the grand prize winner during Super Bowl week."
During the season, DimeSports will give away more than $250,000 in cash prizes, including more than $2,000 in weekly prizes. Weekly winners are determined by the point totals from games played the previous five days (Thursday-Monday). The first weekly prizes will be awarded on September 12, 2007, for games played Sept. 7-11. For more information on the prize structure, visit http://dimesports.net/how-to-play/prizes .
In addition to serving as spokesperson, Sharpe will also contribute weekly columns tabbed: Sharpe's Corner, a weekly overview of who's hot, who's not and the pick of the week during the football season.
The former Denver Broncos tight end Sharpe has served as studio analyst for the CBS Television Network's NFL pre-game show, THE NFL TODAY, since May 2004. He is a three-time Super Bowl champion, back-to-back with the Broncos (1997, 1998), and with the Ravens (2000).
Sharpe's career spanned 14 years with the Broncos (12 seasons) and the Baltimore Ravens (2 seasons), is the NFL's all-time leader in receptions (815) and yards (10,060) by a tight end eclipsing Hall of Famer Ozzie Newsome during the 2001 season. He is also the NFL's all-time leader in touchdowns (62) and 50-catch seasons (11) by a tight end. Sharpe was voted to eight Pro Bowls (1992-98, 2001), as well as the NFL's All-Decade team for the 1990s (first team). He is one of only four tight ends in the NFL annals to post more than one 1,000-yard receiving season (1994, 1,010 yards; 1996, 1,062 yards; 1997, 1,107 yards) and one of four to amass 6,000 receiving yards. He produced 19 career 100-yard games and a Denver Broncos franchise-record seven straight 50-catch seasons (1992-98), during which he was selected to seven straight Pro Bowls.
"We are very pleased to have Shannon Sharpe, who exemplifies the best of professional football players both on the field and off the field to join our DimeSports team," said Braddy. "DimeSports.net is the top football fantasy website in the world. Our prize structure has no equals. Shannon's involvement as spokesperson and contributing to the DimeSports.net with his weekly Sharpe's Corner will make our fantasy league site even more exciting and appealing. Remember DimeSports.net - get in it."
Sharpe entered the NFL in 1990 as the Broncos seventh-round selection (192nd overall) out of Savannah State. A portion of the proceeds from DimeSports Fantasy Football will go to support the charity or scholarship fund of DimeSports' choice.
